was there any -overt- modern day Middle East vs. West allegory / propaganda to it?

nope. you'd have to look awfully hard to find any propoganda in it at all. it's just a retelling of an historical event with a lot of artistic licese taken. pure entertainment.

well, it might be a lousy commercial, but it make a good point. i for one am sick and tired of playing games with loose graphics.

btw, saw "300" yesterday and it was just amazing. very tight graphics too.

i've put a few hours into it and so far i love it. the tweaks to the existing game are all excellent, and the new content is exceptional so far. the new monsters are really cool to look, the environments are beautiful, and voice acting is superb and the challenge has been increased quite a bit. can't wait to play more after my class tonight!

This Dusk 12 game looks pretty interesting, graphics are nice and thick too

ahhhh... nice thick graphics. thick juicy graphics. nice thick medium-rare graphics with a baked potato and a tall frosty mug of beer.

'sticky crosshairs' is just a nice way to say AUTO-TARGETING.

exactly. if the console controller was just as good as a keyboard/mouse, there would be no need for a handicap.

a mid-range video card like the Radeon X1950 GT or GeForce 7900 GS will give you an excellent visual experience

i'm still using a 256MB GeForce 6800GT and i'm currently playing Prey with all the video settings turned all the way up at 1600 x 1200 and it runs smooth as silk.

1. 14 gaming myths Feb 15, 2007, 22:54 tron
 
PC elitists often argue that first-person shooters are intended to be played with a mouse and keyboard, and that no console controller can match this flexibility. This is false.

and the author is delusional.

300 on IMAX is gonna be The Shit...

did you ever see a non-IMAX movie on an IMAX screen? i watch Attack of the Clones on IMAX and didn't care for it too much. the screen was so big and the film wasn't made for it, so it was very disturbing trying to focus at times.

that is the only movie i ever saw on IMAX that wasn't intended for IMAX... anyone have a comment on this?

Tron, could you stop sounding like a broken record please?

since i only made one comment about the game, how is that sounding like a broken record? i played the demo, i did not like it, and i thought i'd share that with others who are on the fence about the game. i love action/RPGs - but i think this game is lousy. the combat isn't very visceral or even fun, the graphics aren't very good, the English translation is poor, the humor is weak, and the enemies are either very easy or extremely difficult to defeat.

so, mr. g_mann - what exactly is your point?

So, yeah. Nethack was there first

true... but i don't think that the nethack crowd is who this game it targeted towards. this is an action/RPG, and to my knowledge there is no action/RPG set entirely within a dungeon. nethack is about as old school RPG as you can get, this game is trying to emulate diablo and titan quest, not ultima and temple of apshai. in any event, this is all just splitting hairs. silly claim or not, the game looks like it might be cool if you're into diablo style gaming.

penetrate the dungeon again and again with their heroic gamecock

now that's damn funny!

you know, if you read the website i get their idea. they're sayng that instead of a typical dungeon with monsters standing around and loot to take, you'll be in a dungeon that actually houses an entire society. maybe you can buy, repair and trade loot in the dungeon and never even have to go to the surface for anything. that actually sounds kind of cool, if you like action/RPGs.

once i got past the silly name and URL, this game looks like it is worth keeping an eye on. the grfx in the trailer look pretty decent. but, since it is due in Q2 2009 (and sure to be delayed) time will tell...

News Comments > Half-Life 2: Episode Two Delayed Again
45. grow up Feb 8, 2007, 09:15 tron
 
meatforce and bicyclerepairman make sense in here.

the rest of you are like a bunch of three-year-olds in wal mart screaming and crying because "i want my new toy NOOOOOW!!!!" and your mommy is saying "no".

so it's delayed, big deal. do something else until fall, then play your damn game. i want the episode and portal and tf2 as much as anyone, and when i hear it's delayed i feel a flicker of disappointment, then quickly get over it. sure - i'd like to have it today... but i can't and i can do nothing to change that - so why let it get to me?

i mean, lets face it - what game doesn't get delayed these days? seems that every game, book, and album i'm interested in will be delayed again and again if i follow the development closely.... it's the rule and things getting done early or even on time are the rare exception. why get upset about something that happens ALL THE TIME. especially about something as trivial as entertainment?

The Good:

mindless shoot 'em up fun
cool music

The Bad:

makes diablo seem like a complicated game
cheeeeesy voice acting
translation issues
extremely repetitive
outdated graphics
poor interface
boring layout
attempts at humor are pretty weak
all weapons seem the same

if this game was $5 on Steam i'd dl it, but no matter how cheap it was i wouldn't feel motivated to actually get up and leave the house to find it. it's a dumbed-down Diablo or Dungeon Siege interactive screensaver type of game, but in a sci-fi setting with lousy graphics.

man... C64 summer and winter games were both great fun. i agree with elaborator - the high dive was one of my favorite events. they were such a huge improvement over the 2600 game Decathalon.
